Tokyo Bullet


I finally made it to the Chinese Embassy in Tokyo on time. Turns out my little mistake of obtaining a 'single-entry' visa in Rome is going to cost me in a big way. At least $100 big to replace it with a multiple-entry visa. Though it's valid for a year so if I want to come back to China soon, no worries! ::sigh:: I almost was out of luck for a second as I was also informed that I no longer have any pages left for visas in my original passport. Then I remembered, I have a second passport sucka! Anyway, I have to head back into Tokyo tomorrow morning to pick it up. Problem is, there's a typhoon (check out the satellite imagery) coming. Hopefully it'll wuss out tonight and the trains will run on time. There's nothing like zipping to Tokyo on the Fujikawa Limited Express to Shizuoka to hop the Shinkansen to Shinagawa. Makes you feel like you've got something important to do.

I think I've become onigiried out. Oh, and why is it so hard to find an internet cafe in Tokyo? < rant>There was one every ten yards in Vishist, India and that was in the Himalayas! I guess if you were visiting Los Angeles as a tourist you'd be hard pressed to find an internet cafe. (further research back at headquarters reveals that Kinkos is the place to look for net access in Tokyo... over 100yen/15 min though) I've been field testing the Sony MYLO around Japan. Free wifi isn't so readily available. That or the little MYLO just can't pick up signals very well. I'm telling you, internet access is the one thing that keeps me from leaving the house. I'm just completely disconnected from free communication like email or Skype. Cheap travel phones... why can't we have those? < /rant>
